I help new retirees and pre-retirees discover how to enjoy retirement. I help you find ideas to supplement your retirement income with unique, fun, or interesting income streams. If you want to get right to that, head on over to the Hire Me page.

Many retirees stumble at this point. After a lifetime of struggling to pay off debts, raise a family, and put away a nest egg for retirement, the reality hits hard. You are a good saver. Are you a responsible spender if you have to break into your nest egg right away?

You’ve imagined your ideal retirement for decades. What do you do first? Do you indulge in your hobbies? Do you book tickets to Ireland? Do you investigate lakefront properties? Wait…all those things cost a lot of money. Will your savings be enough?

The choices are endless. The potential risks are paralyzing. So you do nothing. Spend nothing. Take no risks.

That’s what happened to us. When my husband retired, it shocked us both. Retirement was nothing like we had dreamed!

You can read about some of our adventures…and misadventures…on the blog here. We are having fun now, but it wasn’t (and isn’t) always easy.

You probably denied yourself at least a few “indulgences” so you could be financially responsible, just as we did. But, also like us, you’re probably wondering if you saved enough. Why not make sure you’ve got what you need – and have some fun into the bargain?

You can turn your time into profitable income streams. You can power your retirement indulgences without tapping into your nest egg right away. You can have fun with your retirement AND fund your dreams at the same time.

Best of all – you can do all the things you’ve been denying yourself. Spend time with your grandkids. Renovate your house. Travel the world. Get involved with a charity. Learn a new skill. Teach someone else a new skill. Take up new hobbies. Visit with family and friends.

How much money do you need? You decide.

How can you make money as a retiree? You decide.

I’ll help you create your customized Income Stream Evaluator so it’s easy to zero in on the ideas that will work for you. You’ll never have to waste time on ideas that don’t resonate with you or don’t fit your ideal lifestyle.

Not ready to commit yet? Check out the blog for some interesting ideas you can try too. Or read about how we are creating our retirement lifestyle. One of my current projects is writing a novel about a quilting business owner – if that sounds interesting to you, follow along as I research and post bits and pieces of the novel in progress.

Have a retirement story to share? I’d love to hear how you’re creating new income streams, or getting creative with income streams, or using inventive ideas to make the most of your money.
